At Windward Medispa, we are always on the lookout for the latest treatments that promise the most dramatic results in the shortest period of time. One of our recent discoveries has been the SilkPeel facial, a unique and pampering treatment that combines exfoliation, extraction and serum infusion for maximum benefits. The procedure is also highly customizable to the unique needs of each individual, making this a perfect solution for nearly anyone looking for some non-invasive skin rejuvenation.
Exfoliation is the process of removing dead, dry cells from the surface of the skin so that the smoother, softer skin underneath can shine through. Exfoliation can be performed through a number of techniques, including chemical solutions and lasers. In addition to creating a softer complexion, exfoliation effectively creates better channels for active ingredients to be infused into the dermal layers, where they can provide the greatest benefit.
During a SilkPeel facial, exfoliation is completed using a combination of microdermabrasion and hydration. The traditional diamond tip of the microdermabrasion tool is used with water to leave skin silky smooth. Different diamond tips can be used based on the level of exfoliation the patient requires.
In addition to exfoliating the skin, a SilkPeel facial uses a gentle suction tool to lift dirt and debris away from the skin and unclog pores. This step is invaluable to those dealing with acne-prone skin, clearing away dirt and bacteria that can lead to breakouts. It is also helpful for other skin types, since it opens up the pores to receive the infusion of nutrients that will complete this treatment.
There are a variety of serums that can be infused into the skin during a SilkPeel facial:
- Hydrating Solution – Recommended for dry skin, this serum boasts soothing and hydrating ingredients like aloe, chamomile and hyaluronic acid.
- Clarifying Solution – This formulation features salicylic acid and aloe to reduce breakouts and inflammation often associated with oily, acne-prone skin.
- Vitamin C Solution – A potent dose of vitamin C is in this serum designed to protect the skin from free radical damage caused by pollution, UV rays and stress.
- Lumixyl Solution – Designed specifically to treat brown spots and other pigmentation irregularities on the skin, this formulation contains state-of-the-art peptide technology to clear skin without harsh chemicals.
